Basketball has become an international sports since many different countries allover the world started to pick up on this American game. There are so many international basketball players in the NBA right now from France, Italy, Spain, China, Argentina and more, which makes it harder for many American players. For any of you who really want to play basketball overseas in Europe, China, or any other countries besides US and get paid thousands to millions of dollars, you need to know the tricks to help you get noticed and signed.
First of all, most of these teams don’t even know who you are so how can they sign you to play basketball overseas? I suggest you started to take this seriously and think about different ways to help you get noticed. One of the best ways to show the teams what you have to offer is by making videos of you playing in high school or college games. Make sure to ask your friends or family to take those videos and try to keep them as clear as possible.
Then, you need to upload those videos to basketball legends YouTube and any other video sites to get more views and exposure. Try to think of these videos as a resume for your dream job because this is how the agents are going to judge whether you are a perfect candidate or not. You must know that 90% of all college players can’t get into the NBA especially there are more and more international players as competition. Playing basketball overseas can help you do what you always love and make money at the same time.
The great thing about learning how to play basketball overseas is that you can gradually improve your skill levels and still have many opportunities to join the NBA later on. There are many countries in Europe and Asia where basketball has become more popular than ever before. Those teams are willing to sign you and pay good money to have you on their teams.
One of my good friend in college is currently playing basketball overseas in Spain and getting paid over $200,000 a year. This is very normal and the best time for you to start finding other options rather than just aiming for the NBA. After finish uploading those videos about yourself, you must then find direct contacts of the team agents and start sending applications to them. If they like your videos and resume, they will then contact you and the chance of you getting signed are endless.
